Pin Weaving

You don’t need a loom or other expensive equipment to try weaving. Pin weaving offers both versatility and portability for a woven project. The “loom” can be a piece of foam core or cardboard. The warp threads are held in place with straight pins. Weaving can be done in any direction, using thread, yarn, fabric strips, beads, feathers or other fibers. Pin weaving can offer kids a good introduction to the creativity of weaving.

Pin Weaving Mesh lets you create pin weaving creations without a board. It is a flexible backing into which you can weave yarn, ribbons and other materials.

The Craft and Yarn Depot carries supplies, patterns and pin weaving starter kits.

Linda Twohill of Sew What’s New has examples of pin weaving that incorporates various yarns, cords and beads to create an innovative vest design. Kits containing over 100 yards of coordinated boutique yarns will get you started on your own creative project.

Lili Pintea-Reed has directions for making a Pin Woven Vest using yarns and ribbons.

P Tamers at the Craft Connection site gives a pin weaving lesson for making a vest using strips of fabric. Basic techniques of using tubes, bias strips and fabric strips are explained.

An episode of the Carol Duvall Show demonstrates pin weaving using fusible webbing, cotton fabric strips and bias tape to make a fabric that can be cut into any shape.

Another episode is for a pin-woven Christmas stocking using metallic ribbon and gold fabric.

Lynn Smythe is a bead artist who creates both on loom and off-loom beadwoven projects. She has made an interesting pin-woven necklace of linen, beads and various other yarns.
